Daemon Voices

In this book, novelist Philip Pullman shares a collection of essays about storytelling.

Philip Pullman

One of the most highly acclaimed and best-selling authors of our time now gives us a book that charts the history of his own enchantment with story — from his own books to those of Blake, Milton, Dickens and the Brothers Grimm, among others — and delves into the role of story in education, religion and science. At once personal and wide-ranging, Daemon Voices is both a revelation of the writing mind and the methods of a great contemporary master, and a fascinating exploration of storytelling itself. (From Knopf)

Daemon Voices is available in September 2018.
